Have your say / Re: Coffee & health

That's so true.
Most study's are sponsored for by groups with certain interests and some how set out to prove just what the groups hoped for :)

I've been drinking a lot of pour over coffee made on my Chemex recently and I'm really enjoying both the flavour profiles, and the relatively low acidity

compared to the two or three lattes I usually drink per day, I appear to be dropping some weight (judging by how loose my clothes have become - I can not at all be bothered weighing myself)

and the filter coffee tends to me more gentle on the nervous system as well - I don't find my nerves getting hammered in quite the same way as when I drink espresso

I'm not sure of the science but I'd be willing to wager that caffeine uptake is more gentle and prolonged with filter coffee - as that certainly seems to be my experience

apart from the taste I enjoy the way it makes me feel = winning combination!

Roasted Beans or Blends / Re: What coffee am I drinking at the moment?

Ethiopia Sidamo Ardi natural is going down niiiice... first as double espresso (seems to always be my first up!) then as doppio latte.

Resting this bean more, upping the ratio to about 1:2.25 and pulling a longer shot has helped heaps to eliminate any sourness. 23.5g in, 53g out in 35s.

Long term Members of this forum will know I am a Sunbeam fan and this is not an exercise in "Breville is better than Sunbeam"....or vice versa.  I'm just saying that the functions of the new grinder have met my expectations and perhaps now there is a reason to complete the migration with a Breville Dual Boiler (BES920).

Afterall, it's my Birthday in March  :-|

It's done  >:D

But can't provide a review / comparison until March  :P

It's the Bezzera Family Lever from the 1970s - very similar to the Sama Club of the same vintage.

I actually thought it may have been a Bezzera but it looks newer
That’s why I thought it looks like an Astoria Gloria. It’s possible that the design was borrowed from Bezzera
